Bug eating contestant choked to death

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - A West Palm Beach man, who died after winning a bug and worm eating contest, choked to death on insect parts. That's according to the Broward County Medical Examiner's Office.

Thirty-two-year-old Edward Archbold collapsed outside a Deerfield Beach reptile shop in October.

The autopsy's toxicology tests didn't reveal any lethal substances in Archbold's system. The medical examiner says the insects obstructed his airways causing him to suffocate.
